St. Clair County
Michigan, USA
Death: Dec. 13, 1906
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

Mary Louise McPherson Hackett was the third of three children born to John McPherson (1826-1886) and his wife Pamelia Allen (1820-1912). Her father was a native of Scotland who worked variously as a farmer and mason in Port Huron, St. Clair Co., MI. Mary Louise graduated from Port Huron High School on June 24, 1880. On August 29, 1883 she married Fred Nathan Hackett (1861-1937) in Port Huron. The couple moved to Detroit where Fred worked as a traveling salesman, specializing in saddlery and hardware. They raised three children: Ada Ruth (b. 1885), Lewis Frank (b. 1888), and Mildred (b. 1894). In December 1906 Mary Louise underwent surgery for cancer, but died shortly afterwards from a postoperative infection--all too common in the days before modern antiseptic medicine.

Mrs. F. N. Hackett of 252 Twenty-fifth street, died this morning in Harper hospital, from the effects of an operation performed a week ago for cancer. Mrs. Hackett was 45 years of age and has been a resident of Detroit for 20 years. She was a native of Ruby, St. Clair county, this state. She is survived by two daughters, Ada, aged 20, and Mildred, aged 13; her mother, Mrs. Parmelia [Pamelia] McPherson; a brother, A. D. McPherson; two sisters, Mrs. H. Ziegenfus of Niles, Mich., and Mrs. Francis Montney of Flint, and a half-brother, A.W. Ainfield. Mrs. Hackett was a prominent member of Preston M. E. church. The funeral will be held Saturday.
